WHAT TO EXPECT
Join Ella in this 3 hour workshop that will leave your hips and your heart happy.
You will firstly be guided through a 30 minute calming, mindful meditation and deep releasing Yin Yoga practice to find more space within the body, followed by an introduction to the the benefits of hip openers, enjoying rose tea and quarts crystals.
You will then flow though a 60 minute slow, juicy, empowering hip-opening Vinyasa practice.
Why is it so important to open our hips?
With so many of us having office based jobs we are sat for long periods of time and the hips are flexed, and the hip flexors are shortened. This leads to tight hips, which increases the load and cause overuse of the spine. Tight hips can have a negative effect on other body parts and even lead to injury.
Your hips are the connection point of both your upper and lower body. The ‘hip girdle’ in addition to the 20+ muscles that it encompasses can be viewed as the central station of the body.
Improving our hip mobility and flexibility is not only beneficial for the hips themselves, but the body as a whole. Hip mobility is critical for healthy movement and injury prevention.
Additionally, opening our hips in yogic tradition is seen to release negative energy as the hips are seen as a storage hub for negative emotions and feelings.
